Father Son Watch (updated 1 June)


#1144

The 3 Neagle lads have all joined Central Districts in the SANFL. Apparently 7 AFL clubs were interested in Matt


#1145

Good to hear. A year of SANFL (or WAFL) would be exactly what Neagle needs I reckon.


#1146

Apparently Rodney Eade is the new manager for two of the three.

Or something like that, heard a snippet on radio this morning.


#1147

Yes, I believe Eade has become an accredited player manager now


#1148

Didn’t Neagle get hurt at the end of last year?
From what I understood he wasn’t going to be playing for some time even if he was selected.


#1149

Good to hear. State league footy will do them good.

I assume that we’re talking Matt, Jaxon, and Jydon here? I think Nathan drifted away from footy a while ago, and I doubt Jayy’s involved.


#1150

Yes, Matt, Jaxon and Jydon


#1151

Is out automatic access to matt now forfeited given we didn’t take him?


#1152

Nope. Nobody had a crack, so we still have first dibs.


#1153

Ironic given that Merv used to give Eade the run around when they were directly opposed to each other back in the day.
Dipper on the other hand gave Merv the run around, Doug Hawkins gave Dipper the run around & Merv gave Doug the run around, in one of those odd 3 way things that didn’t quite logically compute.


#1154

Gee, it’s hard keeping track of all these Neagle boys, Jaxon is the youngest isn’t he?


#1155

I THINK the age order is Jay, Jydon, Nathan, Matthew, Jaxon.


#1156

The JHA update that is the latest (well, it has Hanna and Amart logo) has only Jaxom, and him 18. So I suspect you’re correct.

(JHA newsletter)


#1157

Jaxom?

Typo or real silly name?


#1158

His name is Jaxon. So both.


#1159

Unless he signs with someone else as a mature age rookie before the draft - like what carlton/suns had access to.
I hope they all have good years. Would be good for another father son/ academy to be added to the group.

Has Fletcher said if he is going around at TAC cup again as a 19 year old?


#1160

Dustin has been quoted at some recent sportsmans nights regarding Mason.

I assume this indicates he will be playing for the VFL, not sure if this precludes him from playing TAC.


#1161

I assume he’ll play TAC with possible guest appearance(s) as the VFL 23rd man.


#1162

from today


#1163

Hirdy is back.
